    Fun and beautiful
    Karen_G, Apr 2024
    Dave was an excellent tour guide. He was one time, knowledgeable, very friendly and made the tour fun. I enjoyed the beautiful views, the food and the animals. I recommend this tour.
    Great day, do this tour
    Michelle_F, Apr 2024
    This was a great day. Beautiful views, beautiful waterfalls, and Dave who took such great care of us. From snacks and water in the van to a cold beer after our little hike. The cute little wombats were a great end to the day. I have Dave a hard time all day adding and taking away stars, but he took the ribbing well. If you’re iffy about doing this tour do it.
    Great day out in tge countryside
    Lauris_H, Apr 2024
    This was an excellent tour. Dave took us out of the city to two national parks with gorgeous waterfalls and views. We ended tge day in Kangaroo valley where he BBQ 'd for us and then we went 'hunting' for Kangaroo and Wombats. We were not disappointed! We loved this outing!
    Great taste of wildlife and nature in Australia
    BLUE2280, Apr 2024
    Dave was a great guide and made everything easy even on a rainy and misty day. Enjoyed all the parts, and especially the kangaroos and wombats at the end. Highly recommend.
    We had a great time
    Akane_T, Mar 2024
    We had a wonderful day! David is very fun and knowledgeable about animals and nature. All foods were very tasty. We could see kangaroos, wombats, kookaburras etc. especially we could see wombats very closely!
    Great day trip!
    Danielle_M, Mar 2024
    This was a very fun experience! It was pretty cloudy and rainy for my tour but Dave made sure we still had a great time! The pickup locations were easy to get to and the van was nice and super clear! Dave had lots of different snacks and even had portable chargers for all phone options! The lookout points were amazing and so so beautiful even in the rain! Both food stops were excellent! The pie shop was delicious and a fun little treat, it was nice that there were snacks to have since it was a bit of a later lunch, which Dave did warn about. The wombats and kangaroos were so cool! It was awesome to be able to see them in the wild and not in a zoo! Dave was super knowledgeable about them and had lots of fun facts and information to share!
    Perfect day tour!
    Kimberly_C, Mar 2024

    This was a brilliant tour where we saw so much . We visited some fantastic sights and saw scenery that only a great tour guide can deliver. The highlight was being taken to see the Wombats and Kangaroos where we were able to safely get very close to them. Dave who runs the trip is a really caring man who goes above and beyond to ensure that everyone has a great time. Everything is provided from drinks snacks , pies a a great meal in the Friendly Inn. We had a brilliant time and our thanks to Dave who is the real star of the show. Highly recommended.
    Exceeded Expectations!
    Kimberly_H, Mar 2024
    Dave was a fabulous guide. He knew all the places to go for whichever creatures we were looking for. We saw Kangaroos and wombats, but also wallabys, kookaburras and flying foxes/fruit bats. Definitely recommend!
    Wombats, Wombats, Wombats!
    Lise_W, Mar 2024
    Wombats, wombats, wonbats! Up close and personal! Dave was very knowledgable! We even learned some Australian slang! Our stop at Robertson's meat pies was memorable! Dinner was delicious, we had the kangaroo burgers. We can't think of anything that would make this a more memorable experience! Thanks Dave!
    One of the best tours ever !

    We are veteran travelers and frequent Viator users. This tour was absolutely everything promised and more. If I took ANY tour in Sydney I would want it to be with our guide, Dave. The stops at ocean overlooks and the waterfalls were magnificent. Robertson Pies was great fun and yummy. Dave prepared a delicious sunset barbecue meal is a beautiful setting. But, the highlight was encountering literally dozens of kangaroos and wombats in their natural habitat. A well equipped bus and extremely attentive and funny guide. Highly recommend!
    A great day
    Maurice_B, Feb 2024
    Great day. Dave was friendly, knowledgeable and what’s more, a good Oz BBQ cook. Thoroughly recommend - check out his website.
    No regrets
    Peter_Y, Feb 2024
    Awesome day trip out to to see some kangaroos and wombats, mostly, but also a lot of other native Australian wildlife as well. Dave was an enjoyable guide and knowledgeable with his flora and fauna, as well as providing delicious meals throughout to ensure you don’t pass out from hunger. If you have the time in your schedule to go on this excursion, I’d recommend it.
    Great travel experiences...
    MINGLI_Y, Feb 2024
    Great travel experiences in NSW and it’s a wonderful memories to visit wild kangaroos and wombats, we love this tour!
    Best wildlife tour ever
    Judith_R, Feb 2024
    A wombat came right up to me in the wild and let me touch it. We actually got to see kangaroos, red wallaby and brown ones with the cutest Joey and kookaburra.
    Amazing experience
    Gayeong_G, Feb 2024
    I was a bit worried that we didn’t get much of the tour because of the language barrier, but thanks to Dave, my parents, my sister and I all enjoyed the day very much! I loved the walks with beautiful scenery and the falls. Having a kangaroo burger was a unique experience, and it was even delicious! The best part of the tour was definitely the wombats and kangaroos. I could see them in a very short distance, even closer than I expected. It was amazing!
    Amazing trip

    We are a well traveled group having been to many countries and probably have been on 100 plus tours and this by far was one of the best tours we have been on and Dave was one of the best tour guides we have ever had. If you are debating about booking it- stop debating and just book it! You will not be disappointed.
